President Obama’s envoy to Muslim nations participated in a conference in Mauritania last week tied to radical Egyptian cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report reported Monday.

Rashad Hussain, the president’s envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, attended the meeting which focused on “”challenges faced by religious minorities in Muslim-majority communities,” GMBDR reported, citing an Islamic Society of North America article. The gathering was hosted by Abdallah bin Bayyah, vice chair of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, and included ISNA President Mohamed Magid and Community Outreach Director Mohamed Elsanousi.

Bin Bayyah is “a well known global Muslim Brotherhood figure” the GMBDR report said, serving on the European Council for Fatwa and Research, which the NEFA Foundation said was led by Qaradawi. Qaradawi is an influential Brotherhood spiritual leader. He is so revered that the Brotherhood brought him back to Cairo to deliver the first Friday sermon after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak‘s ouster last year.
